I absolutely loved this class - it was the highlight of my trip. Jason, the tour manager, and Didier, the baker, are a great and fun team who explained everything well. We sampled absolutely spectacular bread and pastry, taking a baguette home that was eaten promptly and I've thought about it since. Recipes sent by email later.
It was a really unique experience and I can't recommend it enough!
We loved this experience! The baker was absolutely fabulous - so personable and fun and had us all laughing! We learned to make so many things and got to sample everything. It was one of our Paris highlights!
This was a fantastic tour! we booked last minute booking and we were so glad to have done it. The tour guide Jason was awesome and the owner and artisan baker Didier was really passionate about his work that he made the entire experience so wonderful. This was a definite highlight of our time in Paris! Even my French partner learned a lot. And if you are looking for non-commercially baked bread and pastires, this is the place to go!
I arrived to take this class and wasn't sure where the class would be since the bakery was so small, but was pleasantly surprised when we were brought in to the back working area of the bakery. It was a fascinating class and Sara, the translator was excellent. Didier, the baker, explained all the processes needed to make bread, croissants and puff pastry and gladly answered any questions that came up. He allowed us to have as much hands on experience as possible and I learned so much about baking the French way! I can't wait to use my new tips and tricks!
Excellent! A highlight of our trip to Paris. My 9 and 10 year old daughters both loved it, and Didier organised it so that the 3 kids on the course did something that was more specific to them for part of the time.
This was a visit to a real working bakery in Paris, run by Didier Lavy, who was very charming and funny. He is also the second place winner of the best crossaint in Paris, out of 200 bakers. While it wasn't as hands on as I had hoped, we did learn a lot and were able to ask questions. We did get a baguette and crossaint to take home, along with the recipes. It seems that some of the particular ingredients may not be available in the U.S., but the baker did offer some alternatives. So, I'll give it a try as soon as I can. An overall good experience.
Too much fun . . . even with an interpreter the experience was priceless and a must do when in Paris!
Such a fun and learning experience! Chef Didier Lavry of Le Petit Mitron gave us so much of his time and shared his passion for this profession. We were all inspired to go home and get elbow deep in flour! Such a great experience I will never forget!
This was Avery fun experience. I would highly recommend it.
This was a highlight of our Paris trip. Baker Didier is full of personality and charm and our translator was great. Didn't receive the recipes as promised, however.
